Heisler and Hostetler Reach 100-Point Mark in Win Over Denver
Colonials Defeat Pioneers, 9-7
April 3, 2005
WASHINGTON, DC - Senior captain Jenny Heisler and sophomore Laura Hostetler became the third and fourth Colonials to record 100 career points as the GW women's lacrosse team (6-2) posted a 9-7 decision against Denver (2-10) on Sunday, April 3 at the Mount Vernon Athletic Complex. Heisler tallied an assist in the victory and has exactly 100 career points, while Hostetler notched six goals versus the Pioneers and has 102 points for her career.
Hostetler's six scores matched her season high set against William & Mary in the season opener and is tied for second on GW's single-game goals scored list. Her 102 points is the third-highest total in program history.
Hostetler scored GW's first three goals in the contest as the Colonials grabbed a 3-1 lead at the 5:04 mark. Consecutive free-position scores by Denver's Kate Broderick tied the game, and the Pioneers took the lead on an unassisted goal by Crystal Jack at 13:08. Junior Annie Howley knotted the match at four apiece with an unassisted tally at 19:23, and each team scored once in the final 5:08 to head into the locker room tied, 5-5.
Hostetler tickled the twine twice in the first five minutes of the second half to put GW ahead, 7-5. The Pioneers' Steph Greenlees brought Denver within one with an unassisted goal at 35:48, but Hostetler's final marker of the afternoon put the Colonials back in front by two, 8-6, at the 44:24 mark. The Pioneers drew within one again when Caroline Muldoon batted a loose ball past GW goaltender Caitlin Garman with 12:34 left on the clock and Denver had a chance to tie the match in the final minutes, but Garman stopped Jack from point-blank range with 2:30 to play giving the Colonials possession of the ball. GW cleared successfully and spread the field, holding the ball as time wound down, until Howley fed freshman Katelyn Honeyford for her second career goal with eight seconds remaining to secure the triumph.
Garman recorded her second consecutive victory, making five saves in 30 minutes of action. Howley finished with three points (1g, 2a) on the day.
The Colonials held the edge in shots, 34-18, including outshooting the Pioneers, 20-6, in the first half. Denver owned the advantage in draw controls, 12-6.
Greenlees paced Denver with three goals and also added three draw controls. Broderick notched a ground ball and a draw control to go along with her two scores. Goalie Steph Schneider made 17 saves in the cage for the Pioneers.
The Colonials will face Atlantic 10 foe St. Bonaventure on Friday, April 8 at 3:00 p.m. at the Mount Vernon Athletic Complex. Against the Bonnies, GW will be aiming to match the school single-season record for victories (8).
